Latest Nature Photonics Stories
A new technique for revealing images of hidden objects may one day allow pilots to peer through fog and doctors to see more precisely into the human body without surgery.
University of Calgary researchers use quantum entanglement to stack light particles.
A new, more efficient low-cost microring resonator for high speed telecommunications systems has been developed and tested by Professor Roberto Morandotti's INRS team in collaboration with Canadian, American, and Australian researchers.
Northwestern University researchers have developed compact, mid-infrared laser diodes that generate more light than heat â€” a breakthroughs in quantum cascade laser efficiency.
Researchers are devising instruments and protocols to assess the impact of nanoparticles on the environment and human health before they are sent to market.
MIT researchers have developed a new way to tune the frequency of lasers that operate in the terahertz spectrum - an important step toward airport scanners that could tell whether a vial in a closed suitcase contains aspirin, methamphetamines or an explosive.
The next generation of optical devices could borrow inspiration from the spectacular eyes of the mantis shrimp.
Physicists at UC San Diego have successfully created speedy integrated circuits with particles called â€œexcitonsâ€ that operate at commercially cold temperatures, bringing the possibility of a new type of extremely fast computer based on excitons closer to reality.
A Princeton-led team of researchers has discovered an entirely new mechanism for making common electronic materials emit laser beams.
Nature Photonics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 2007 and published monthly by the Nature Publishing Group. As with other Nature journals, this periodical has no external Editorial Board with editorial decisions made by a fully-functioning in-house team. The journal covers research related to optoelectronics, laser science, imaging, communications, and other aspects of photonics. It publishes review articles, research papers, news and commentary, and research...
